Awesome Acorns

I have developed a recent fascination with acorns!

It is mind-boggling that God can take something so small and seemingly insignificant and transform it into this beautiful, magnificent oak tree (are you seeing the spiritual parallels to our own lives? :-)).

Fall is the season where you might find a few extra acorns dotting your front lawn…  So after you dwell on the spiritual symbolism of the acorn, make a craft with them!

Glazed donuts, Nutella, some chocolate sprinkles/crushed toffee bits, and a pretzel stick = cutest snack for fall EVER.

Check the recipe out at Gracious Rain and make a bunch for your next mom’s group or church gathering this month.

“…to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.” Isaiah 61:3

  1. Great ideas! We just gathered acorns on our walk the other day but haven’t done anything with them. I especially love the photo frame and the little acorn family. Thanks!

The Fairy would love to hear from YOU! :-) Seriously, it's my favorite. Leave a comment!
